The basis for the intended class action lawsuit is that the company may have said things about the game and the company that is not true, to secure financing.
Rosen Law first out
Now the American company Rosen Law has sued the company on more or less the same basis. According to the company, CD Project Red should have stated that Cyberpunk 2077 "was virtually impossible to play" on Playstation 4 and Xbox One when it was launched, due to "a huge number of errors".
The class-action lawsuit is the first of potentially several lawsuits against the gaming company. Investors are disappointed and money was lost. Had they shown more about how the game actually was, many investors would probably have withdrawn. According to the Polish company, CD Project Red may also have released misleading material prior to launch.
Success after all
But even though the game was almost impossible to play in the beginning, it has sold over 13 million copies. 8 million were pre-sales.
Following the launch, Sony withdrew the game from the Playstation Store and Microsoft extended its payback deadline, but looking at sales figures globally across all platforms, the game is still a success.
On Steam, the game is now the fourth most played, and after a number of bug fixes, it should have gotten better. Still, Cyberpunk 2077 has a long way to go before the game reflects expectations. If it ever will.
